Bhutanese brothers robbed in India


Two Bhutanese brothers hailing from Pemagatshel have returned home being robbed their entire belongings after  missing for a week.

Nar Bahadur Tamang, 40, and his brother, Aita Tamang, 22, who were on their way to Phuent­sholing to take delivery of a Mahindra Bolero pickup were drugged and robbed of Nu 30,000 in cash and a cheque for Nu 503,000 in a train in India.

On August 28, the Tamang brothers reached Samdrup Jongkhar  from where they went to Ran­gia where they boarded the train.  The Tamang brothers were offered  biscuit and made them loose their consciousness by a decent looking man who later robbed their entire belongings. Later, the found themselves in an unknown place in the middle of the forest.

The next morning when the elder brother returned to the train after going out to search food, his brother was found missing.

“An elderly man on a train bound for Delhi, who spoke some Nepali, advised me to stay in Karagpur from where it is easier to catch an­other train back to Rangia. He gave me Rs 100. I broke down and cried until tears ceased to flow from my eyes”, recalls Nar.

Somehow, with help of the travelers, he reached back to Pemagatshel six days after he went missing. Two days later, Aita also reached home after he walked 49 km from Rangia to Samdrup Jongkhar.
